Your trusted AM partner
The expertise in additive manufacturing coupled with extensive knowledge in the field of tool steel ensures that we deliver the best possible tooling solutions to our customers. We help our customers develop the right solution for the right application through a detailed consulting process. State-of-the-art tools are used to support the manufacturing process from initial concept to functional parts. If needed, our experts can help our customers redesign tools to meet the exact requirements of their application.
Our data-driven approach to cooling channel design analyzes processing parameters and mechanical loads to develop detailed computer models and process simulations. This method of optimizing thermal management is essential to ensure the right balance between efficient cooling and the mechanical performance of the mold.
This process goes far beyond regular near-contour cooling channel design. We understand your application.
We ensure the highest possible quality, reliability, and consistency by controlling every step of the value chain from powder production to delivery of the finished part. Whether single part orders or series production, our internal quality systems ensure that we meet your requirements at all times.
State-of-the-art tools are used to continuously improve and refine our internal printing processes. Design of experiments, statistical process control and process monitoring form the basis of our methodology. Continuous innovation from our AM and materials groups ensures that we deliver superior material properties in the most demanding applications.
We understand the interactions between laser and material. This deep understanding of AM, IM and HPDC enables customers to add value to their business and realize competitive advantage.
